Experience Cathkin Braes...

The brilliant Tom Watson once said a great golf course not only frees but challenges a golfer’s mind and the stunning setting of Cathkin Braes offers the perfect environment to do both.

Founded in 1888 and later redesigned by the acclaimed James Braid, it is the oldest golf course in Glasgow. The 6209-yard, par 71, moorland course is, despite its name, relatively flat but there are some tricky tree-lined holes, such as the par-3 fifth where you must overcome a loch to reach the well-protected green.

Although situated only five miles from the centre of Glasgow, it is in the middle of the countryside and widely regarded as one of the best inland courses in the West of Scotland.
